The Eagles would love to keep Miles Sanders, but his price might be too high to make that happen.
The Philadelphia Eagles have twenty players this year that are set to hit the free-agent market on March 15th, and one of them is Miles Sanders. What makes matters more interesting is Philly’s RB2 from the 2022-2023 NFL season is also one of their impending free agents. Boston Scott is at the end of his current deal as well.
Miles’s situation is very interesting. The former Penn State alum had a career year in 2022, rushing for 1,269 yards and 11 touchdowns. That was the fifth-highest rushing yards total by a tailback last season. It was also the first time in his career that he crossed the 1,000-yard threshold. For his efforts, he earned his first Pro Bowl nod.
There are a number of teams out there looking for a feature back (or another one to add to their committee), and it’s doubtful, with more pressing needs that Philly’s leadership structure will invest heavily in a tailback for the long term.
One thing Sanders’s potential suitors will examine is, with the exception of this past season, he has had trouble staying healthy. Still, if Philadelphia decides that it’s best to move on, Miles will have suitors. Here’s a look at three franchises that might be very interested in his addition.
